Design Guidelines for Digital Learning Material for Food Chemistry Education.
Diederen, Julia; Gruppen, Harry; Voragen, Alphons G. J.; Hartog, Rob; Mulder, Martin; Biemans, Harm
This paper describes the first stage of a 4-year research project on the design, development and use of Web-based digital learning material for food chemistry education. The paper discusses design guidelines, based on principles that were selected from theories on learning and instruction, and illustrates in detail how these guidelines were used for the design and implementation of digital learning objects (LO). Six cases, a set of presentational LO and a dozen interactive exercises have been designed, developed, implemented, and imported in different learning environments. The design guidelines proved to be useful during the design process. The digital learning material has been evaluated positively by students and lecturers. The material forms now a set of inspiring examples for food chemistry in higher education. (Contains 10 references, 3 tables, and 2 figures.) (Author)
